Patient Recognition Week at LCMH

  • National Patient Recognition Week (February 1 – 7) is a time for healthcare providers and all other people who come into contact with or provide services for patients to “seriously reflect on their stewardship of patient care and their dedication to patient satisfaction.”
  • This special date was founded by John O’Malley in 1995.
  • National Patient Recognition Week promotes observance of health care patients, and it is rather unique since most health care awareness dates focus on health care personnel or specific health issues.
  • National Patient Recognition Week revolves around patient satisfaction, and upon observing patient satisfaction, health care providers can use the time to consider ways in which they can enhance it.
  • Personnel in the healthcare industry commit to patient care every day, but with the arrival of the first week in February, they can make sure to go the extra mile and let patients know how important their well-being is.
